I know friends who are DeP fans and they envy us and have for years even in our worst eras, we've been better than them.It’s so disappointing to again see DePaul not able to be competitive in the BE and judging from this loss to Purdue - Ft Wayne not competitive overall .
Like we did getting RP , DePaul needs a total reset . Getting a big name former Coach and opening up the NIL wallet have to be a priority .
They have been BE doormats or close to it , ever since they joined the BE . They haven’t been able to tap into many of the top 100 players in years and they didn’t pick up coveted Portal players this year either .
Of course , another option would be for them to withdraw from the BE and drop down to a lower D1 league . I think they could negotiate a release without any financial penalty under the circumstances .
